I've got a Bazooka full of Pixie Dust, and I'm not afraid to use it!

aawesome update!! What a great day. Pedi and massage after KTTK was a stroke of brillience! I should have done that... I could have used it

C and LL and others.... yes KTTK should be mandatory for DISers like us!! Tatally worth it! And C there are 3 times... so you don't HAVE to get up at the crack of dawn

The stepsisters are a hoot! I love that Anastasia had a thing for Nobby
I agree though... the food there was blah. Breakfast there was AMAZING though

yay for DIS meets!! I need a spreadsheet to figure out who all we will get to meet in Sept... but I can't wait to meet everyone!!

What another great update! I am so happy you have this TR rolling again. I think you day sounds fantastic. KTTK tour, characters, GF, a spa treatment, 1900 Park Fare, and a Dis meet! Way to fill up a day.

DH and I are eating at Narcoosee's in September and I am so looking forward to exploring the GF. It is one resort that I have never set foot in. Of course, I may never want to leave again!

OMG, Jen, I'm in update heaven!

First of all, this day was AWESOME!!!! You seriously know how to solo travel. And you know what I love about your report? You're so happy! You're really enjoying yourself, whether it's trying new things, or old favorites, and it's just a pleasure to read.

I don't even know where to start. I'm glad you wrote about the tour. I've thought of doing it but never had. Something to consider.

I've always wanted to try CHH, so I'm glad to hear you liked your lunch there. And don't feel bad about the Dole Whip float. It's definitely an acquired taste. I know my mom looks both, but if she's feeling like something less sweet, she'll just get the ice cream, and not the float, so I could totally see that. For me, I find the pineapple juice to be so refreshing on a hot day (and if it wasn't hot then, it wouldn't have had the same effect, you know?).

Glad you snuck in some characters on your way out! And oh, heaven! I love the pictures of the GF! It's my mothership. Did you know that? It calls to me.

I love the spa, too...again, something I haven't done in years. Maybe I should get a brochure...hmm...

Glad you had a nice dinner at 1900 Park Fare! And lots of fun with those stepsisters, huh? I love it when the characters are so interactive.

Oh yes, Daisy is quite the lady. That's why I love her! She also wears pink shoes, which makes her my favorite 'fur' girl.

I went and had a pedi with my girlfriends today. It certainly wasn't the Grand Floridian, but it was still so nice.

You and Kim are so precious! Wish I could have been there, too.

Jen, what a great update to enjoy during my Friday night DIS time! The Keys to the Kingdom Tour sounds fantastic!!! One day I would love to do it! Then, you had a relaxing day at the spa, followed by dinner at the Grand Floridian, and then a DIS meet! You just didn't stop!

Jen, your updates are a hoot. Let Nobby know I'll be a member of his fan club should he ever decide to form one, and thanks for making me laugh!

what a perfectly wonderful day...

I did the family magic tour with my [I]family[I] and it was awesome-I'd love to try to Keys tour sometime...

Not to get personal but I have a question about Noddy. Is he your typical garden gnome-not that there is anything typical about him-his star power shine through but he seems a little more vertically challenged than the gnomes I've seen in gardens-Is he a smaller kind of garden gnome? (It seems like it would be difficult to carry him around if he were traditionally sized...)

sigh...I wish I had a Noddy...I wonder if he has any family members seeking adoption...

This was a very full day but it wasn't a tiring day...I had an amazing time and yes me being able to touch something in the HM was another dream come true LOL

Did you say pedicure? My toesies are in need of some attention.

I put 1900 Park Fare on my list every year and end up ditching it for something else. The food really doesnt appeal to me but I really want to meet those stepsisters. But then Mary Poppins is at breakfast. Decisions, Decisions.

Do we get to see what you got at Goofy's? Do we Do We?
Unfortunately I enjoyed what I ate at Goofy's so much I didn't take any pictures I know I fail!! However I will make that up to you on my Sept. trip!!!

The food was okay at 1900 but the interaction with the characters was great...you can't beat it!

I'm glad you were able to get in some "You" time at the GF. Great pictures, too!! I got married at the Wedding Pavillion and the pohotographer took some fantastic pictures from that staircase at the GF

Never been to Goofy's Candy. Does it smell like chocolate in there? DH will flip out as he's deathly allergic to it
Yes when you walk into Goofy's it does smell like chocolate, the smell alone will make you gain 5 lbs!!! I really enjoyed my "me" time at the GF and look forward to visiting that spa again some time!!!

And it sounds like you had a great time at the spa and dinner too! I love the stepsisters! And so great you got to meet another disser! What a fab day!

No... I'm not quite on my trip yet. I was hoping to get this TR done before I left on Wednesday, but I don't think it will happen.

What a great day! Talk about relaxing. The KTTK tour sounds amazing. Maybe one day... A massage sounds heavenly right now. I bet having one at the GF was even better than a normal massage! How wonderful. I've never been to Goofy's Candy Co. but it's in the plans for our first day in Sept! Can't wait!! Great, great update!

I found your TR a few days ago and I've just caught up on reading it. I'm usually not much of a poster, but I had to comment and tell you how fun your TR is, and how much I've enjoyed reading it.
